MEDEA

ANNA ZUBRZYCKI STUDIO

When it comes to true love, fate knows no mercy

Medea is a journey from light to dark, from joy to despair, into the deepest and

also darkest aspects of the human psyche. An extraordinary love cracks in the

face of political decisions and gives rise to wild and dangerous forces.

An exceptional woman , deserted in a foreign land, dominated by male power,

finds herself cornered. Though she is strong, and knows her power, she cannot

change the course of fate.

This ancient Greek tragedy has returned to find its new place in our

contemporary political and social context, in these times of great migrations,

cultural conflicts and clashes of values.

 

ABOUT THE ENSEMBLE:

Anna Zubrzycki initiated the performance which is directed by well –known

and respected Swiss director and dramaturg Sabine Harbeke.

The performance interconnects different means of expression with music and

movement on an equal par with her new adaptation of Euripides text.

The main roles are performed by legendary and internationally respected

actors of the Polish independent theatre world: Anna Zubrzycki, actress from ‘

Gardzienice’ theatre and the co-founder and principle performer of ‘Song of

the Goat ‘theatre and Mariusz Golaj, founding member and principle performer

of Gardzienice theatre.

Piot Dziubek, has composed a musical score which reflects his deep journey

into the landscape of Medea, forming a musical architecture for the drama to unfold.
